A brand new improvised show, where top comedians play lawyers prosecuting and defending charges set against YOU, is set to storm the Brighton Comedy Festival Fringe this month.
See newly appointed Judge, Tim Fitzhigham preside over the proceedings alongside court clerk Trevor Lock / Thom Tuck, who will be laying down the law on special guest defendants and their lawyers.
Previously, special guest lawyers have included Al Murray, Sara Pascoe, Marcus Brigstocke, Pippa Evans, Mark Dolan, Phill Jupitus, Fred MacAulay, Tony Law, and Stuart Goldsmith.
Creator of the show, David Allison is a law graduate, a writer, director and maker of films and TV, lover of comedy. He came up with the idea of personalised comedy shows after he was brought up on stage at the Queen’s Head in Camden by the MC, Sara Pascoe.
After putting Kate Copstick on Trial at the Fringe 2013 he began working with producer Emily Gough and the improv format was born.
This Is Your Trial comes to The Old Market on Sat 25 Oct, as part of Brighton Comedy Festival Fringe
